John Carlyle Square Park Fountain - May 2012

As readers know, the City of Alexandria Health Department forced the Carlyle Community Council (CCC) to shut down the John Carlyle Square Park interactive fountain in summer 2012. Since that time, the CCC has been working diligently with the Health Department and the vendors that serve the Carlyle neighborhood of Alexandria community to get the fountain back up and running.

After a LONG and very THOROUGH review of the interactive fountain, the Health Department gave its blessing today to have the fountain run once more. The residents in Carlyle responded this way.

Metrorail
In case you are wondering why your Metrorail train is traveling a little slow this afternoon, Metro has implemented speed restrictions on curves throughout the system. That means trains are slowing to 35 mph to 40 mph as they approach a curve. This is part of an “aggressive campaign” by Metro to inspect curved sections of track following the Aug. 6 derailment.
